Walpole, MA. – New Pond Village, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Walpole, Massachusetts, has been named one of the best senior living communities in the country by U.S. News & World Report. New Pond Village was awarded for its independent living. Its assisted living and memory care were also recognized.

In being selected as a top senior living community, New Pond Village demonstrated excellence in safety, activities & enrichment, and staff & hospitality, among other attributes.

Located in a small town just 25 miles from vibrant downtown Boston, New Pond Village is a CCRC that offers a refined, yet comfortable, maintenance-free lifestyle for retirees. Residents have the opportunity to participate in engaging activities and programs to fit any lifestyle. As a CCRC, New Pond Village provides a full continuum of care for those who need it, when they need it, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

“We are thrilled to be recognized among the best by U.S. News & World Report,” said Executive Director Adam Manchester. “This incredible acknowledgement is a testament to the environment that our team has cultivated at the community to support and engage residents. Our associates care deeply about our residents, their families, and always providing individualized care to all those who call New Pond Village home.”

In compiling its list, U.S. News & World Report analyzed survey data from nearly 4,000 senior living communities across the nation. For the 2023 Best Senior Living edition, 150 resident and family member surveys were analyzed in order to determine what sets New Pond Village apart. Comments from those surveys are shared anonymously on the publication’s website. New Pond residents and their families shared such feedback as, “Everybody here is looking for care, comfort, safety and companionship. NVP delivers that each and every day. From day one my anxieties were laid to rest,” and “We have a tremendous staff that takes care of us 24 hours a day every day of the year!”

New Pond Village is part of Benchmark Senior Living. Forty Benchmark communities throughout the Northeast received a total of 53 U.S. News awards for the second straight year, far outpacing the industry average for achieving “Best” status.

“We are honored and humbled that our residents and their families, once again, recognized the hard work, compassion, and dedication of our 6,000-plus associates. It’s their shared purpose of transforming lives through human connection that earned Benchmark these U.S. News & World Report awards and continues to separate Benchmark communities from other senior living companies,” said Tom Grape, founder, chairman and CEO of Benchmark.
